The University of Massachusetts Boston Film Series kicks off with PUSSY RIOT - A PUNK PRAYER, including Filmmaker Q&A with Co-director, Maxim Pozdorovkin.
Tells the story of three young women, Nadia, Masha and Katia of the feminist art collective, “Pussy Riot,” who face seven years in a Russian prison for a 40 second satirical performance in a Moscow cathedral. But who is really on trial in a case that has gripped the nation and the world beyond, three young artists or the society they live in?
The series is an initiative of the Chancellor's Office. This monthly Series, which is free and open to the public, showcases innovative and thought-provoking filmmakers and their work.
The UMass Boston Film Series pays particular attention to emerging and iconic directors of acclaimed documentaries that have obtained recognition for their unique, relevant, and exceptional cinematic efforts. The Series hosts filmmakers for in-person Q&As moderated by curator and lecturer Chico Colvard. The Film Series also partners with UMass Boston faculty, film industry insiders, and local organizations to participate in post-screening panel discussions about the issues central to the featured films. Ultimately, the UMass Boston Film Series aims to create a synergy of place around the moving image.
